And they hunger…
Otto Jones, a cop assigned to the seemingly random murder of a vampire, would rather hide out in the nearest bar than waste his time on a dead vamp. He hates the bloodthirsty demons. But when the king of the vampires commands him to work with one of the lesser princes and find the killer, he has no choice.
Prince Jessamine Senera is ready to sacrifice his happiness in a loveless marriage for his family’s benefit… but not yet. He dreams of adventure, excitement, and true love. He lives on romance novels and detective stories and wishes he could drink synthetic blood like every other vampire. But he can’t. He needs human blood to survive and is hated by vampires and humans alike.
As Otto and Jessa draw closer to an entity that doesn’t want to be discovered, Otto finds the heart he thought long dead opening to the romance-loving Jessa. No good can possibly come from falling in love with a vampire, but when a shadowy assailant attacks Jessa, Otto will descend into the darkest pit of the earth to rescue him.
If you like vampires, mythical and urban settings, intense suspense, and happy ever after, then you’ll love this first book in the dark and mysterious Ellowyn Found trilogy!
A Vampire’s Heart is a stand-alone paranormal dystopian noir romance with a satisfying conclusion to the love story and a central mystery that weaves the trilogy together.

A Vampire’s Heart, Ellowyn Found 1 by Kayleigh Sky was an interesting read. A little slow on the upstart, the book soon picked up and I couldn’t put it down. A world where humans and vampires exist in a symbiotic, yet not copacetic relationship, human detective Otto found himself in the center of a murder case, an obnoxious vampire partner, and a baby prince whom intrigued him.
Jessamine, prince of one of the royal vampire families, loved romance and believed in fated love. He’s well taken care of by his sister and brother, yet longed for love and adventure. Finding himself paired with Otto to solve the mystery behind the murders, Jessa felt drawn to the gruff detective, such as he was drawn to his romance books.
The book started slow, and I wondered if it was more that I needed to learn the key players and the terminology. Very quickly, I was engrossed in the murder mystery and became enthralled the more I read. I adored Jessa and his carefree attitude and his yearning for life. Otto was no nonsense, a Mike Hammer-style character. All of Ms. Sky’s characters were depth-filled and intriguing. Her delivery was carefully crafted, a mystery within a conundrum and although there was an HEA, there was definitely more to come in the second book. Marketed as a trilogy, I look forward to reading the next book, as the ending of A Vampire’s Heart left unanswered questions and a thriller to be solved.
